Need some help guys. Can you tell me whats the nearest train station to Edinburgh Airport?

I need to fly from there but I'll be travelling in from Glasgow and will take a taxi when I get off the train. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Edinburgh Waverley - approx 8 miles away


To get to or from the airport to the train station in Edinburgh you can take the blue Airport shuttle bus from Waverley Bridge just outside Waverley station. You can also take taxis but that is generally quite expensive. An airport rail link connecting Edinburgh Airport to the City Centre will be developed over the next few years to make transfer easier and faster.

Edinburgh Waverley is the closest. You can catch an express bus from there for just £3.00:thumbsup:

Edinburgh Park Rail Station about 3.7 miles (used google maps)

Cheers guys!

Just checked and looks like coming from Glasgow, Haymarket may be the best if am getting a taxi.

Thanks for your help. Repped for all!

Get the Citylink from Glasgow. Get off on the A8 Glasgow Road at Eastfield Road. (Ask the driver) Turn right down Eastfield Road. Airport is at the bottom. Obviously ignore if you've got tons of luggage or can't manage the walk.

Where you going? Algarve? Southampton? Holland? :-)

Edinburgh Haymarket is the best to get off as they have a local bus that goes to the airport every 20-30 minutes just outside the train station. Edinburgh rail park station has no bus stop and I haven't seen any taxis outside the station before. As for Waverley it can be expensive to get a taxi to the airport as it is the furthest away.

The airport bus is the best option, runs at least every 10 minutes all through the day:
